Description
I am happy to submit my latest image of a wonderful Geminid Meteor in Taurus (along with the Planet, Jupiter). I made this image at about 8:30 PM on the evening of 12-13-12. I used a Cannon 60Da camera with a Carl Zeiss 35 mm lens at f2.0, ISO was 640 and the exposure time was 107 seconds. Photo was made in Jadwin, Missouri. I saw the meteor strike the atmosphere with my own eyes, and I knew, I had it! Fantastic sight!
